east back from the brink. chip reid on the resignation of congressman jesse jackson, jr. the target of an ethics investigation. scott pelley with the c.e.o. of goldman sachs warning of the dangers of the fiscal cliff. >> what you won't repair is people's attitudes towards the united states. >> glor: and dean reynolds on why there's a smaller bounty to share with the hungry this thanksgiving. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> glor: good evening. scott's off tonight. i'm jeff glor. i eight days of bomb blasts and a celebration in gaza tonight after israel and hamas agreed to a cease-fire. a deal was announced in cairo by secretary of state hillary clinton and egypt's foreign minister. israel agreed to stop air strikes in gaza, where at least 161 palestinians have been killed since last wednesday. hamas promised to stop firing rockets which have killed five israelis. there were fears the deal might not happen after a bomb went off on a bus in tel aviv this morning. 27 people were hurt, no one has claimed responsibility. we have reports fro
object, or have mitch mcconnell say i object. harry reid says, oh, well, we move on to the next thing and that's the end of it. >> that's the way they do it. they double track it. they say we'll talk about other business now. what do you think is going to be the way the senate decides this? will it be partisan whether they decide to go to a real filibuster, you go to the mattresses, you stay up all night and force quorum calls over and over again? or they give up on change? what do you think is going to be the politics of this? >> the politics right now is mitch mcconnell is absolutely opposing any change in the rules because he has the advantage of paralyzing the senate with no public accountability. the talking filibuster forces his process to be done before the american people, and i think he realizes the american people are not going to like what they see. and yet that's where it should be. if you don't have the courage of your convictions to stand before the american people and say, i am obstructing this bill and here is why, then, in fact, you should shut up, sit down, and let t
. harry reid, the democratic majority leader, wants to make some changes. debate has to start before a filibuster can begin. he might require any senator wishing to filibuster to stand up there and talk to which republicans are saying if you do that, we the minority are going to burn the place down. senator tom coburn of oklahoma saying, "i think the backlash will be severe. if you take away minority rights because that's what you're doing, you'll destroy this place. if you destroy the place, we'll do what we have to fight back." john cornyn says if democrats change the rules, it it will shut down the senate, it's such an abuse of power. you might ask how their e threats of a shutdown differ materially from the shutdown senate now when the minority will not allow a majority vote on anything giving them the power to control the senate. we called the two senators and asked specifically what they propose to do if they manage to tweak the filibuster. senator cornyn's office got back to us, but not with an answer. senator coburn did not respond, but he did give politico.com a hint of what
bizarre that the leader of the democrats in the senate, harry reid, attacks me personally. the american people don't want their taxes raised. they have kind of signaled that in the most recent senate election where harry reid's guy lost and the anti-tax candidate won in nevada. so the tax issue is a powerful issue. i understand it comes with the territory, that people attack me personally. it doesn't bother me. i'm very comfortable in my own skin. if they want to waste their time personally attacking me, they're free to do so. but taxes are too high. spending is too high. this needs to be changed and i think the american people will make it clear as time unfolds that raising taxes is not where they want to go. >> grover norquist, thanks very much for joining us. >> thanks, wolf. >>> let's get another point of view right now. joining us, dick durbin, assistant majority leader, the senator from illinois. senator, thanks very much for coming in. we just heard from grover norquist, several republicans on capitol hill this week have said they would consider defying his pledge but for some of
majority leader harry reid says raising the debt limit has to be part of any package. john tester a members of the banking committee. newly re-elected. >> thanks, andrea. >> thanks very much for being with us. you're from one of the reddest of red states, you squeaked through. congratulations on that victory. what does it now bring you right into the middle of these negotiations and a tough vote. what are the people back home telling you? >> the people back home have been telling us some time we need to work together as americans, not as democrats or republicans. i think the folks back home are really sick of the hyper partisanship in washington, d.c., which has resulted in really a lot of dysfunction and so especially when it comes to the issue of debt and deficit it's going to take folks working together as americans, put the parties aside, do what's right for the country and move on. >> you're willing to vote for higher taxes some changes in medicare, including eligibility age, tougher means testing. some kind of reduction in benefits for future beneficiaries not the current. >> i tell y
. they fall to 3-8 on the year. and after his team's seventh straight loss, coach andy reid said after the game, he's not spoken to the eagles' ownership about the future with the team. and you know what, mika? he might as well not. i don't think he's going to be back in philadelphia next year. >> more news from the nfl, lions' defensive tackle ndamukong suh won't be suspended for kicking texans' quarterback matt schaub in the groin during the lions' loss to the texans on thanksgiving day. >> you can tell, he hits the ground, it's just a twitch. >> who does that? oops. following an official review of the incident, the league rules that suh's actions didn't warrant suspension, but they're still considering whether to fine him. schaub told a houston radio station yesterday that he would never want to be suh's teammate saying quote, you don't want a player like that. the stuff he hands for and the type of player he is, that's not houston texan worthy. suh has been fined four times and suspended two games. >>> a big showdown in the tri-state area. the new york knicks traveled across the ea
as six years. >> big day for starry eyed open otimists. chip reid is following the story as excitement builds and ticket lines grow longer for the powerball. >> reporter: this weekend the amount that shoppers are spending is not the only number. take a look at the powerball jackpot, $325 million. nearly $213 in a single cash payment. 44 states and territories offer a chance to play. since the lottery raised the price of a single ticket to $2 in january, the prizes have increased even while the number of tickets purchased has declined. the chances of winning saturday's jackpot 1 in 75 million. recently there's some big winners. iowa hit it big with two jackpots this year. >> it's the number one cash jackpot to an individual or a couple in iowa's lottery history. >> reporter: the couple bought a ticket in a $202 million contest and took home 90 million in cash. a group of 20 quakerr oats worker split winnings in june. the surge in ticket purpose before a big jackpot but they say they are not sure how thanksgiving will affect tonight's drawing. for cbs "this mornin
-- no, and reid is right behind and denver is up by 6. they outscored them in the second quarter. clay thompson all of his 16 points in the first half. warriors up 6 at the break. nuggets piling on andre iguodala he had a game high and he can dunk big. jeff curry a non-factor and in foul trouble. warriors in minnesota tonight. >> semifinals in anaheim, against pacific. the tigers upset xavier in the opener. driving and scoring two of his 18. tigers are too much. they shoot 53% from the field. he had 18 and gales first off the year, 76-66. >> stanford, winners. as for the football team the formula is simple, beat ucla at rose bowl in pac-12 champs. bruins coming off a huge win. they cinched eight week saturday. the irony should stanford beat ucla the two teams would play again in the pac-12 championship game this friday. >> that is down the road. this is one week of practice in one game. after that, great. we'll be prepared for that. >> i'm counting our teams maturity. all year long we've talked about last week's game doesn't help this weeks game. >> we finished the game on a high and h
're not going to stop the front four of anybody else. >> problematic. hey, with any luck, andy reid will be coaching the packers next year. >> or rex ryan. >> hey, we'll give you rex. you want rex ryan? >> we're happy with our coach. i would not want to be andy reid. >> no. >> he's going to san diego, barnicle tells me. >> he'd be on san diego next year. >> let's talk about what's in politico. you want to do that? >> love to. >> okay. so fiscal cliff is all the talk of washington, obviously. but you guys are writing this morning, your headline about the other fiscal fight, which is, again, the debt ceiling. >> yeah, i think people forget we have essentially three blink moments, sequestration, the debate, and we hit the debt limit probably some time in february. and you have to raise the debt limit unless you take the posture that some folks in the democratic party are recommending and saying just raise it unilaterally, have the president do that. i don't think that's what they want to do right now. in the past, congress has had to raise that debt limit. and as you know, house republ
majority leader harry reid said social security should be completely off the table. let's watch the senate leader. >> i've told anyone that will listen, including everyone in the white house, including the president, that i am not going to be part of having social security as part of these talks. >> okay. the president is feeling the pressure to stick to his guns but how much room does he have to reach a compromise before the end of the year? and will the left support one if he does? most importantly, what is the risk to the country of not reaching a deal in the near future? jared bernstein, senior fellow at the senior of budget and policy priorities and an msnbc contributor, vice president of biden's chief economic adviser and joan walsh, editor-at-large of salon. i was trying to get the facts and understand it. the congressional budget office, nonpartisan says if we go off the cliff january 1st which means we let those taxes terminate, the tax rates to go back up again for everybody back up there where they were before this past president was here f we let those cuts go in definition and
of taxes. and also stuck on the issue of entitlements. we had harry reid come out and basically say he wasn't open to reforming especially social security. so there's a big question mark about how they're going to move forward. remember, these are sort of their opening bids. presumably there is room for some sort of movement on either side. in terms of getting a deal done by the first of the year, i think there's a lot of pressure on both sides to try to get something done here. you remember the debt ceiling debate. after that sort of knockdown dragout fight, congress had its lowest approval ratings in history. they know they need to get something done. remember, if they don't get something done before the first of the year, it could have serious consequences on the economy. >> i want to ask you both to weigh in on this question. kristen, you do the political angle and neil you give me the nuts and bolts. yesterday john boehner wrote an op-ed calling for the health care law to be part of the negotiations, he wrote in part the president's health care law at the massive, expensive, unworkable
. republicans talking about reforming entitlements. you have harry reid saying he is not open to reforming specifically social security. there may be some wiggle room on some of the other entitlements, but things are off to a rocky start with house speaker john boehner writing an editorial saying he thinks the president's health care plan should be on the table. that is certainly something that both sides will go to the mat over, but i think there's a lot of pressure to get a deal done by the first of the year for the reason that you just cited. because if they don't, this will have a big impact according to a lot of economists on the economy and they just don't want to see that happen and bear the brunt of that. >> understandably so. quickly, the president's plans for today are what? is he there in the house behind you or elsewhere? >> reporter: he is in the house behind me. quiet day at the white house with his traditional thanksgiving dinner with the first family. i'm sure there will be all the fixings on the table, turkey, ham, a lot of different types of pies. yesterday president obam
leader harry reid that the work on this would continue over the break and that they hope to meet the president this week when they return. right now that meeting is not yet on the schedule, but that can certainly change, randi. >> has there been any concrete movement as far as we can tell that they are edging maybe just a little bit closer to a deal? >> well, that's really the question here. i mean, as i said, the work has continued among staffers discussing this. we know what the big hold-ups are, the big sticking points, and that's how to raise more tax revenue. we know republicans can put revenue on the table, but they don't want to see tax rates go up for anyone. we also know that the president ran on this idea of raising taxes on the wealthiest among us. the other issue is entitlements. republicans want to see democrats reform programs like medicare, so those are the sticking points. now, if there's been progress that hasn't been made public yet, and i can tell you that right after the election the president spoke with house speaker john boehner, and they talked about a grea
a president. the democrats have harry reid. we have mitch mcconnell. get them in the room. and that's what representative governments should be about. no one gets all they want. if reagan and o'neal can do it, r boehner and obama should be able to do this. >> the last attempt at a grand bargain, it was the politics and brinksmanship and it all went nowhere until a final deal that brought us to this breaking point. do you think that the tax issue has to be solved first before you can get to any defending issues, any of the entitlement issues? >> i think it all has to be on the table. again, i don't want to be said what has to be done first or second. that's for them in the room. but the election is over. president obama won. he won fair and square. we won the house. we won it fair and square. democrats still control the senate. slight edge to the democrats. bottom line, it's over with. let's find a way to get this resolved as much as possible between now and the end of the year. so both the new congress and the president in his second term can start over with a clean slate. we have so many
republicans in congress to accept tax increases on the wealthy. joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com. she's at least as smart as i am, which is not an accolade, it's a fact, and she's much younger. okay. we found out this weekend, and you know this better than i, i enjoy your report on this, the obama campaign wasn't some kumbaya number. it was an incredibly organized machine. it was real, it was people meeting people, getting points for how many contacts you made with voters. they knew a certain number of contacts led to a probability of people voting. incredibly hands-on, real people with other people. can you turn that machine into something that can get the right kind of deal? >> i think the president spent a year and a half developing a gigantic infrastructure that and he did that -- >> human. >> through these kinds of direct contacts, but he also had an argument in the campaign that brought those people out. and central to that argument was that we need an economy that works for everyone, that people need to pay their fair share. >> so the key element of that, joy, is that
about patty murray. a lot of people are tired about hearing about mitch mcconnell and harry reid and some of these other leaders this is one you want to read this profile. >> we'll get to that. how but, robert? what's your must-read? >> my good friend, sheryl gay stollberg has a piece in "the new york times," about the historic nature of president obama's second inaugural. it will be on a second and the following day, the public ceremony on martin luther king jr. day and how fitting and how folks are lowering expectations given the fact they don't think they're going to have 1.8 million come out, as many people came out as four years ago. an interesting read. >> you never know, weather can always play part in that as well. we're all excited. thanks, all of you, i do appreciate it. and we'll see you again soon. >>> that is a wrap-up of this sunday edition of "weekends with alex witt." do stay with us, we have headline updates. up next, "meet the press," i'm alex witt, make it a good one. ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans?
